Recipe for Success – The DPP Story, Abbreviated

In About the Program on June 10, 2010 at 6:12 PM

Recipe for Creating a Successful DPP Program:

1. Take two passionate, dedicated healthcare providers with a taste for innovation.

2. Mix in 30% diabetes rate amongst minority patients.

3. Gently fold in a major nation-wide study proving that lifestyle intervention prevents diabetes.

3. In a separate bowl, sift through nation-wide grant applications and funding sources until what is left is a foundation committed to using sophisticated research results to impact minority health.

4. Combine the committed foundation with passionate, dedicated healthcare providers, the 30% diabetes rate, and proven study results and let marinate for 6-8 months – the creation, called Diabetes Prevention Program, will begin to rise.

5. When looking close to bursting, allow into the kitchen a group of pre-diabetic patients who can’t wait to taste what’s been cooking.

6. Bake, and closely observe results.

7. Document appearances, smells, reactions, successful and unsuccessful aspects of the program, and repeat process as needed.
